The best just may be the one on Reckoning - 10/31/80.

Love JG's tone on the 74 versions, but hate the vocals

4-23-77 sweet
5-7-77 could be the all timer for me
11-30-79 power
10-10-82 punch
8-21-83 bombs
10-12-83 Billy and Mick
9-12-88 simply sublime
6-9-90 band was really firing

Really great lyrics and tune and there are many excellent versions throughout the years. There is a nice version on The DP Cow Palace 1974 release. As well as 2 Acoustic versions on the Expanded Reckoning release from 1980.
Here is a Birdsong>Cassidy from The Greek 1981 that I have always loved.

I'll second ya, Capt. I've always liked the Cow Palace '74 version--the song's debut in fact. The arrangement is very similar to the studio version from Ace and sounds quite different than the "Cassidy"s of '76 onward.

Thanks for the great read! I gravitate towards 5/7/77 and 10/8/82 in KC (correct date?) for my cassidy fix. Ernie Bo-Peep

The show you refer to was Starlight 8-3-82.
I tend to gravitate towards another Starlight show, 9-3-85 for my Cassidy fix.

Thanks for the date correction, I knew I had that wrong. I'll have to devote some time to cassidy later, I'm sure all these are fine. What I like is the spooky jam before the last chorus, for example, without a net.

Probably my favorite of the Bobby tunes, and this is definitely my favorite version ever:

The jam section is mind-blowing and the return back into "Flight of the seabirds..." is flawless.
